Hiring contractors in Ecuador can be a rollercoaster

Hiring Ecuadorian contractors can be taxing. There are many tasks to complete, including classifying them correctly and making contributions to the Ecuadorian Institute of Social Security. Additionally, you’ll want to make sure you pay Ecuadorian contractors in US dollars, which replaced the Ecuadorian sucre in 2000. With Rippling, you can grow your international team quickly and compliantly in Ecuador—and beyond.
